Boat was very clean, tables well spaced and food excellent. Waiting staff a plenty, would highly recommend
I was traveling alone, and was crunched for time as I was here for work. You get to indulge in some sandwiches, sweets, coffee/tea. You can see most sights from the inside of the boat, but I scarfed down some food, drank some coffee, and headed up to the main deck outside for better view of the sights. I was able to snap some great shots of the Tower Bridge, London Eye, and Big Ben. Straightforward tour.
Loved it!! Food was great and we just enjoyed sailing down the Thames and seeing buildings from a different view.
This was truly a lovely experience and a great way for my 15 yr old daughter and I to end our last day in London. The service was great and the food delicious! Great views of the old architecture and new architecture! We were fortunate enough to have a window seat although any seat has a great view because of the glass windows all around you. Would recommend it for adults and families!!!
You can't beat the views along the River Thames. Although everyone hopes to sit near the window, there really isn't a bad seat on the cruise as you are free to stand at the front of the boat to take photos. The food was good and offered a nice variety. My husband and I were pleased that we could enjoy salmon and vegetarian sandwiches (as we are pescetarians). The wait staff were very attentive and the tea/coffee flowed endlessly! It thought it was worth the price and I would definitely do this again!
This exceeded our expectations! Not only was the boat lovely and clean, but the food served was delightful. Way more food than we anticipated. Delicious scones with jam, assorted cookies and amazing sandwiches were displayed on three tier stand. Tea or coffee was included. There was also an opportunity to partake in champagne at an additional charge. It was a typical rainy day in London, but this excursion brightened our spirits and filled our bellies. Highly recommended!
A very pleasant trip down the river, with a delicious afternoon tea. The staff were polite and helpful. Value for money, I would go again.
This was a lovely afternoon Tea on the Thames. Food was very good and plentiful. No fault of the tour operator, but the rain and condensation inside made it hard to see out the windows for the view.
Tea and sandwiches were good. Nice variety of little sweets, so everyone found something they liked. We arrived early so we were one of the first onboard, but they didn't board anyone until the last minute. They allowed us to switch from center table against the back wall to a little closer to the windows. View is pretty good from the second row of tables. Those who arrive last are seated furthest from the wall and served food and tea last, so definitely recommend arriving early. I had fruit tea selection from a box, but husband had the regular tea they served. He said it was excellent. First time around was luke warm, but each subsequent refill it was hotter. We also shared a jug of Pimms for under 20 pounds.
I only wish they had more narration. There was only one quip about Trafalgar square on the way up. The return trip they played maybe 8 recorded commentaries. We would have much preferred a fully narrated tour, but this was a very nice afternoon trip.
Because this is billed as a "sightseeing cruise", I somehow expected a bit of expert commentary to accompany the "cruise" - maybe a little of London history, buildings along the Thames, what bridge we were passing under etc. It would have been nice to know what we were looking at. The food was decent, although our server was a bit rude and impatient. But because I was expecting a little more, after the first pass up the river, I found the cruise a bit boring and hum drum.
Take afternoon tea on the Thames during a 1.5-hour river sightseeing cruise in London. While enjoying the oh-so-British tradition of tea with cakes and sandwiches, cruise through the heart of central London on a round-trip route from Tower Pier to Westminster to see several of the city’s best-known sights. Gaze out at the London Eye, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and more!
